Senate leaders dismiss McCrory as irrelevant…again

McCrory_budget305-aIn case you wondered if the relationship between Senate leaders and Governor Pat McCrory has improved, the answer would be a resounding no judging by a recent interview of powerful Senate Rules Chair Tom Apodaca in the Asheville Citizen-Times.

Apodaca was asked about the progress in state budget negotiations and blasted the House for “going a little crazy” and then the topic turned to Gov. McCrory.

Will the governor play a role in these negotiations?

“No. The governor doesn’t play much of a role in anything.”

Yikes. Senate leaders not only don’t agree with McCrory, they can’t even bring themselves to take him seriously.

    This is true at this point. The Gov has already had his input on that heinous progressive budget the House submitted, so there is no need for the Senate to consult him as they need to beat the stuffing out of the House to come to their side.
